Off On A Torta Adventure

21 Sep

On Friday we took a bus for our Torta adventure to Merida. After five and a half hour ride through pineapple fields and small towns we arrived for our stay. If you look at a map of Mexico, Merida is the capital of the state of Yucatan. It’s situated at the tip of the peninsula.

We were offered the use of a lovely home that is within walking distance of the zocalo, central square. We’ve been exploring churches, the artisan market and a lovely museum.

On Sunday the roads around the center are closed to motor vehicles. The bicycles are out on mass.

There is a large artists market and walkers in their Sunday best.

We will definitely be back. What a lovely colonial town. We’re off in a few days to explore more of the Yucatan on our way back to Bacalar.
